The moment of the preparation for the catch.The BIOROWER teaches you to accept what the boat can, and what it cannot do.How much sense does it make to pull straight backwards from this position? Not sure? Start left again.
Almost prepared for the catch - the hands are now visibly goingoutward rather then forward, the same is valid for the shoulders
Preparing to reach out for the catch - hands are moving away from each other,the shoulders are a lot more open then just before
Mid of recovery - hands preparing for the catch angle, shoulders are relaxed and together
Coming forward means letting the hands recover first.As they start to overlap, the shoulders start to move towards each other again.
Preparing the release - the drive phase is finished. Hands and shoulders are farther apart from each other then just before.
The very last part of the drive - hands and shoulders pulling and moving outward,away from each other again.
Coming towards the last part of the stroke - the hands start to move their way outward,the shoulders now transfer the momentum of the upper body mass.
The orthogonal position - the hands are overlapping, the shoulders come even closer.
The start of the middle phase of the drive - the hands are about to overlap.The shoulders have moved even more towards each other.
Applying force means bringing the hands together, resulting in your shoulders moving towards each other.
The catch - hands wide appart, shoulders prestretched
“I was able to enhance my stability for any stroke rateby training on the BIOROWER with live biomechanic feedback.I could have never done this on a regular ergometer. Therefore, winter training on the BIOROWER has improved my technique for the boat as well.”Julius Hirtzberger, SenB heavy weight
